Just a quick note to say I’ll be presenting some of the brand new mobile features packed into the Flash 8 IDE at the London MMUG on the 15th of September.

I plan on showing several things including the emulator, the excellent docs, and also some things you may not associate with Flash Lite programming now enabled by the new IDE. If you have any requests, please post below.

Of course there’s a whole evening planned with talks from Mike Downey, Ian Turner, Aral Balkan and Guy Watson, so there’s definitely something for everyone. I hope to see you there!

SUSHI MultiUser Server for Flash, Flash Lite, J2SE & J2ME

There aren’t a lack of mutli-user servers out there that work with Flash, but this one has some great features:

  • SUSHI supports socket and HTTP connections (HTTP tunneling.)
  • SUSHI provides a web based, graphical administration.
  • Free 30 user license edition.
  • Hosting.

One other thing that I was really impressed with is the beautiful documentation, they have really gone to town with examples and diagrams, nice job.

Check out SUSHI’s home page. (thanks to Madokan for the link.)

MXNA Flash Lite App

Ok, so this is my first attempt at using the new MXNA Flash Lite services. I must say, apart from the initial problem with the feed, now fixed thanks for Christian and Mike, it all went very smoothly.

You can run the app in the regular Flash player here (remember the key mappings, PageUp and PageDown are your phones softkeys).

You can download it for your phone here (including source code!)

Finally, here’s a quick screenshot:
